My artisan bread in five variation
I mixed up the basic recipe, then the next day did some kneading, rolled it out, rolled it up into a cylindrical loaf, let it rise on a cookie sheet, slashed it lengthwise, baked at 450, no steam about 30 minutes (last ten at 400

I liked it - nice open texture, great flavor, great oven rise! Toasts up very well! Here's a pic after the first taste test -

1. It's very pretty! Why did you decide to knead it?
Looks like you still got some good lift, even after kneading.

2. It just seemed too raggedy to roll out...
So I gave it a light knead - the fold and turn 90 degrees kind, only a minute or two. When I rolled it out it still had pretty big air pockets.
